libgnt.so "undefined reference" when building 2.5.2 on RHEL4

I'm trying to build Pidgin 2.5.2 on RHEL4, and though ./configure succeeds
without error, the make fails at the linking stage:

***
/bin/sh ../libtool --silent --tag=CC --mode=link gcc  -g -g -O2   -o finch
-export-dynamic gntaccount.o gntblist.o gntcertmgr.o gntconn.o gntconv.o
gntdebug.o gntft.o finch.o gntidle.o gntlog.o gntnotify.o gntplugin.o

./libgnt/.libs/libgnt.so: undefined reference to `Tcl_RecordAndEval'
./libgnt/.libs/libgnt.so: undefined reference to `Tcl_ExprDouble'
..
..
(A whack of other TCL and TK-related undefined references follow)
..
..
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[3]: *** [finch] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/localdisk/data/install/pidgin-2.5.2/finch'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/localdisk/data/install/pidgin-2.5.2/finch'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/localdisk/data/install/pidgin-2.5.2'
make: *** [all] Error 2
***

I configured the source with:

***
./configure \
  --prefix=/localdisk/data/programs/pidgin-2.5.2 \
  --disable-gtkspell \
  --disable-gstreamer \
  --disable-meanwhile \
  --disable-avahi \
  --disable-dbus \
  --with-nspr-includes=/opt/tools/unsupported/nss-3.9.2/include/nspr \
  --with-nspr-libs=/opt/tools/unsupported/nss-3.9.2/lib \
  --with-nss-includes=/opt/tools/unsupported/nss-3.9.2/include/nss \
  --with-nss-libs=/opt/tools/unsupported/nss-3.9.2/lib
***

Which resulted in:

***

configure complete, now type 'make'

I have TCL and TK installed, and they worked fine with the same ./configure
options for building Pidgin 2.4.2:

> rpm -qa |grep ^tcl-
tcl-8.4.7-2
tcl-devel-8.4.7-2
> rpm -qa |grep ^tk-
tk-8.4.7-3.el4_6.1

I even tried reconfiguring 2.5.2 with --disable-tcl and --disable-tk, making
clean, and making, but the same error occurs.

Any ideas?
